    just move the troops to romania, montengero, czech republic, poland, the baltic states (estonia, lithuiania, latvia), hungary, bulgaria... spread em out among our allies who appreciate our alliance and are trying to train their best with us so they can do more to defend their nations, keep and maintain the peace and fight terrorism.

    I suppose that the US should now be ashamed, upset, and groveling. Somehow, I dont see the current administration or the US military doing that. Maybe the Kerry campaign will take it upon themselves to apologize.

    When they get there, at least half of them should point west.

    What's really weird, this was over a newpaper article. Germany thinks the government can control the press? :wtf:

    The Bundeswehr has always been noted for its cultural sensitivity and its respect for freedom of the press.

    I'm not suprised Germany is trying to control the press. I give it 20 years and it'll be borderline fascist like Putin's Russia. Of course they will never go all the way to fascism again. Not without Hitler and his magical mind control watch that he hypnotized everyone with. Amazing what a couple of Sherman tanks coming down the strasse can do to wake you from a trance.
